I guess if you are already in the microcontroller market buying another microcontroller business does not look like a lot of value....but if you are in the memory market and need to get into the MCU market it does look like value.

So why did the established MCU players such as Freescale, Microchip, NXP or Atmel not buy the Fujitsu business ? Surely Microchip has plenty of cash and this would have been a steal; Probably TI is still busy integrating the National Semi biz. Spansion will now need to get into the ARM Cortex Sub $ 1 market in which they have little experience;

Now why did I not hear about this from Spansion? In 2009, we asked Spansion for their recommendation for the best NOR Flash (series, size, package) for the future. After following their recommendation, the 65nm parts (with the same part number) have changed sufficiently that some of our products require Firmware changes. This has caused me to have less confidence in Spansion's commitment to the 10 year lifespan. My company still uses Spansion parts so I hope that this proves to be an isolated incident.
